The core series of emergency resources for the Brownsville Fire Department involve fire and life safety rescue apparatus. When fire, hurricanes, traffic accidents, or other emergencies occur, the Department's fire and rescue resources are called into action.

The Brownsville Fire Department also relies on EMS resources. More than 85% of the Department's daily emergency responses are related emergency medical services (EMS). Brownsville Fire transports many people on a daily basis to local hospitals. Our resources for EMS are a key component of Brownsville's fire emergency resource pool.
